Blogging With Integrity

I took the pledge and I am proudly displaying the badge.

It’s important to me.

It should be important to all of us that blog, but that is just my opinion.

The words below are not my own. They are from the directly from the Blog With Integrity site. I thank the founders – Susan Getgood, Liz Gumbinner, Kristen Chase and Julie Marsh for the pledge’s creation.

BLOG WITH INTEGRITY

By displaying the Blog with Integrity badge or signing the pledge, I assert that the trust of my readers and the blogging community is important to me.

I treat others respectfully, attacking ideas and not people. I also welcome respectful disagreement with my own ideas.

I believe in intellectual property rights, providing links, citing sources, and crediting inspiration where appropriate.

I disclose my material relationships, policies and business practices. My readers will know the difference between editorial, advertorial, and advertising, should I choose to have it. If I do sponsored or paid posts, they are clearly marked.

When collaborating with marketers and PR professionals, I handle myself professionally and abide by basic journalistic standards.

I always present my honest opinions to the best of my ability.

I own my words. Even if I occasionally have to eat them.

If you are interested in signing the pledge too, you can find it here.

I hope you do.
